They enjoyed seeing the film on the giant outdoor screen set up in the park, with a bar, and traditional cinema snacks like sweets and popcorn available.

The film on Saturday followed on from a sell out singalong showing of the Russel Crowe film The Greatest Showman on Friday night.

The films were the latest in a series of outdoor events put on by Boston Borough Council over the summer months.

Events this weekend include a fun fair at Central Park, which runs until Sunday 30 September, and a Witches and Wizardry Afternoon Tea at Boston Guildhall.
